Monday, September 30, 2013


Here is one dish you will want to save!! This is huge favorite at our house! This is a dish that can pretty easily be customized to fit the likes or dislikes of every family member.

Want chicken? Go ahead and add it! Want more veggies? Just add them! We used turkey bacon to make it a little more healthy, you could also do a whole grain pasta and egg whites only. And voilà! you have a super healthy dinner for your family! Or you could take this in the opposite direction and make it super delectable it's really up to you! You get the point... this dish is like "mad libs" in a bowl, mix and you can match any ingredients you want.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
